Xocolat’s Taza De Xocolat remains to be one of Pinoy’s top-of-mind drinks whenever they hear the word “hot chocolate” and with good reason: it’s made fresh upon order and packs a punch with that thick, rich, and bold flavor you can only get in local cafés such as this. Don’t call yourself a self-proclaimed hot chocolate lover if you haven’t tried this!

St. Louis Café’s signature hot chocolate is a must-try for any chocolate lover! The drink itself is delightfully rich and you’ll love the chocolate syrup that just oozes down the side of the entire cup. And with the addition of giant marshmallows on the side, you’ll feel like a kid getting cozy at a campfire!

8. PAUL Boulangerie and Patisserie

PAUL’s Chocolat Chaud drink looks like a simple, unassuming drink but it’s so decadent, comforting, and heavenly! It’s great to have with PAUL’s assortment of mouthwatering food and desserts too.

7. The Coffee Academics

The Coffee Academics in Bonifacio Global City may be a destination for coffee lovers, but there are also drinks made for those who don’t prefer caffeine—such as their signature Sipping Chocolate! It’s made with homemade chocolate syrup and offers a unique experience if you have it hot or if you have it iced. It’s not overly sweet either!

6. Shangri-La at the Fort Bake House

Panaderya Toyo’s Tsokolate is a hidden gem that you can be able to try when you check out the Drink, Bread & Spread option from their menu. You’ll love it especially if you’re the type who likes to dip their pastry into their drink!

Risa Chocolates’ Hot Chocolate provides that temporary comfort of simpler days with a drink that looks ordinary but is packed with yummy flavor! The addition of the tiny marshmallows on top adds just a kick of sweetness you’ll keep craving in every sip. But what makes it stand out is the tiny spoon it’s served with that’s made out of chocolate. Stir it into your drink for even more chocolatey goodness!

3. Wildflour Café + Bakery

Wildflour’s Hazelnut Hot Chocolate is well-loved by those who prefer their drink to be on the sweeter side and just adds that perfect nutty flavor. Personally, I love drinking this with an assortment of Wildflour’s delicious freshly baked goods (and I love dipping them into the hot chocolate even more).

2. La Creperie

Though it may have a wide selection of hot chocolate drinks on the menu, La Creperie’s Angelina is by far the shining star among them all. It’s a decadent drink with dark chocolate couvertures and a side of whipped cream that’s best paired with a simple Butter and Sugar Crepe.

1. Mary Grace Café

What would a hot chocolate list be without Mary Grace Café’s very own Premium Belgian Hot Chocolate? They are now being sold in bottles so you can enjoy them either hot or cold in the comfort of your own home!
